nissans are commonly good cars- even though i love my american cars- only problems i have run into w/ nissans suvs are problems that many suvs have--- commonly suspension problems. these can be really expensive to fix. if you friend is looking for an older suv have it checked by an ASE certified tech. people tend to neglect greasing their suspension parts when getting oil changes. but all around nissan makes a reliable product. hope this helps. if not goooooooooooooooooogle! marissa ASE tech ( 6 years)
